It’s ok to go for a walk in the woods, but I prefer the creeks side trail to this one

Nice and easy, did not like that you could hear all the cars from the highway the whole first half of the hike.

Nice scenery, and a number of trails to choose from but not all are well marked. Probably at it's most beautiful in late spring and summer, then when the leaves change. All in all, a nice walk thru the woods.

HikingGreat!

We really enjoyed these trails! We strayed from the main blue trail and explored some of the smaller trails. So many Interesting trees and different ecosystems. Very well marked but we definitely needed the map to know which way to go and not get lost.

Loved the trail and how it varied! I have to agree that it is vaguely marked. Didn't quite get that! Without the app, we'd still be wandering. I love that the app allows me to go places like this with ease. I'd love to go back and explore more of the side trails. Saw beaver activity, but no lodge? Great walk with a friend!

Mostly snow and ice covered but Charlie girl and I didn’t mind. Besides the crunching under our feet, the geese were quite loud and the beavers were slapping their tails in force.

It was alright..not well marked so it’s pretty easy to get off trail. Lots of down trees and it’s pretty muddy. I worse running sneakers wish I would have worn my hiking shoes because it was a little slippery. Good for a quick hike/workout if you live in the area but not worth traveling too.

Lots of swamp area. The river edge was nice, and the abandoned cabin was really cool. Not a whole lot to see otherwise.

HikingGreat!

One of the best trails in Burlington County. Not hard but diverse and great views. Minimal mud. The All Trails loop is a combination of the green, yellow and white blazed trails. Worth getting a trail map from the Rancocas State Park web site to minimize wrong turns.

HikingGreat!Icy

Very nice walk. Going off trail a little will still land you back on the main loop in most areas. Using the heatmap helped a lot. There are a few areas that have a decent view of the river. As most people said some of the trails are not clearly marked so make sure you are paying attention, especially the closer you get to the trail head. I finished the loop in a couple of hours at a < 2 mph pace.
